The facility is a large, white brick, Colonial-style mansion on a treed lot with an expansive green lawn, a charming gazebo and an encased horse-drawn carriage (part of our storied past). Inside, elegant Victorian-style décor creates a homey atmosphere.

History

Entrance at J.E. Foust & Son Funeral DirectorsFoust & Son Funeral Home, 523 South Main Street in Grapevine, Texas, is in the old Yates home. Originally built around 1870, the home was given to Junius Edward Merritt Yates and his bride Kate Jenkins by Jenkins' parents.

By the 1880s, J.E. Foust was building a general merchandise store near Texas and Main Street. In addition to his other wares, he began selling a confection known as lemon ice, a forerunner to the present day snow cone. In 1889, Foust expanded his business to include farm equipment, hardware and caskets. Quite early in his casket making business, the young Foust expanded his business to meet the needs of the community by hiring wagons and drivers for funeral services.

In the mid-1940s, J.E. Foust II bought the Yates home and moved his family into the elegant plantation style home, all the while his funeral business continued to expand. During this time, most funerals were held at the family’s home or at a church. As time progressed, the custom of holding a funeral service in someone else’s home became more socially acceptable, and the Foust family began adjusting the house to accommodate these needs.

In 2014, Foust & Son merged with Dignity Memorial to better serve the Grapevine community. Today, we offer families a variety of funeral services including bereavement travel and full-service receptions. We are happy to be known for by our core values: Respect, Integrity, Service Excellence and Enduring Relationships.

"Rick did a great job"

September 2020

"I started the process of trying to 'pre' plan my grandmothers funeral, as she was on hospice and only had a couple of days left with us. I knew her wishes but she didn't have anything set in stone. I inquired with Fousts to get some information and within 10 minutes I received a call from Rick. I was impressed with his care and compassion and willingness to help. I had just spoken to another local funeral home and they came across as just wanting a sale, but Rick was the complete opposite of that. Rick and Rebecca were always available to take my calls if I had any questions and helped make the planning and the funeral process much easier during a difficult time. The funeral home itself is beautiful and historically known on Main Street in Grapevine. Their chapel is very large and was the perfect spot to celebrate my grandmothers life. I would happily recommend them to anyone wanting to make preplan or needing to make quick arrangements."
